If I'm not mistaken they took out a lot of the swearing, or at least censored it.

That was Sky Deck. The Sonic and Knuckles versions of that one were pretty bad, especially Knuckles with that stupid lever that tilts the ship, that was the wonkiest fucking thing

Tails' is just as bad but you could skip most of it by flying anyway

The game was already hard, but doable. The screen crunch made it harder than it needed to be.

And on another note, while it was a multiplat the ps3 version of Bayonetta was pretty bad.
>>
would've been perfect, if Ubi hadn't locked the 3D effect into "turn into Ray Charles after five minutes of gameplay"
Seriously. Anyone who owns this can agree with me, the 3D effect in this game is terrible, there's no way to play with it on
I don't blame them. This was one of the first titles on the 3DS

>>
>>258313273
its censored with bleeps
in all honesty it made it more funny to me


also the muliplayer was different which for alot of people automaticaly meant it was bad. the multiplayer was made in mind for teams of 8 to play against each other over XBL and was classbased with 2 player splitscreen for online or against bots. It wasn't bad, just different.

I still play it alone with bots sometimes on "a bridge too narrow" and on the more enclosed maps I like playing as the sneaker due to the fucking amazing parkour-like movement all due to walljumping. I fucking love it and wish RARE was making shooters like it even if childish or something instead of that fucking idiotic kinnect stuff that they are forced to make. but... guess we'll have to make our own :^)

By censoring it even further, making the artstyle total balls, and dumbing down the gameplay for the kiddies.

because its cheap for poor people to buy when they can't afford a gameboy, a Super nintendo or N64

they made it not to have a good game, but a game someone will buy because a kid asked for "duke nukem 3d"
>>
>>258318351
But...it's a gamecom...they should have known better.

Or hell, maybe they did know better and thought that piece of shit would be a hit because of the many other Tiger games

>>258312227
Yep, but Doom 2 had a fuckin great port for GBA. Adapted to a engine that works on GBA makes it run very well all considered, and it features all of the content, besides some of the more exact mechanics and level lighting

Agreed, who's lazy fuck idea was to port the Jaguar version, make the music sound worse than the 32X version and not include the missing levels? Goddamn.

Doom 2's the shit on the GBA, I would love to see someone try to hack it so it plays the original Doom

At least someone was there to fix DaS1 in 20 minutes.

I remember playing the shit out of the multiplayer on the N64 version with my friend. It was great fun, gory, but perfect for my elementary school mind.

Blasting heads off squirrels, massacring them with chainsaws and katanas. Throwing knife skill fights. Too much fun.

Then they fucking changed it all. Bleh...

At least the singleplayer was still decent, although the Matrix parody felt a little dated.
>>
>>258321196
I played as Mega Man my first time through, and I preferred it to my Bass playthrough.

The 32x version was miles above the fucking garbage SNES version, at least.

I haven't played it but the orange box on the PS3 is supposedly a really bad port with long loading times and a lot of slowdowns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toxV57oM-cM

whait guys I don't get it, what's so bad about the gba DOOM? I was thinking about buying it
>>
>>258323194
>>258323054
It really depends, it had horrible slowdowns (not as bad as the 3DO version, though) , and the level design had to be severely dumbed down so it could run on the console

I think of the SNES version as a novelty that should amaze people rather than make them feel disgusted, it might not play like he Doom we know, but damn if it isn't impressive.
>>
>>258323307
it's an okay port, I didn't know it was a terrible port until this thread. Unrelated, but get a gba flash card, it's worth it.
